Information about the Area

Chapel Hill, also known as the “southern part of heaven,” is the quintessential college town. Chapel Hill and its next-door neighbor, Carrboro, offer cultural variety, great schools and communities, beautiful natural surroundings and dynamic downtowns. In fact, Chapel Hill was recently named one of the most livable cities in America, thanks to its fare-free transit system.

Beyond the diverse and welcoming community of Chapel Hill, there’s also the Research Triangle — one of the nation’s fastest-growing high-tech centers — and the many cultural amenities of nearby Raleigh-Durham.

Centrally located in the state, Chapel Hill offers a convenient departure point for day trips to explore all that the beautiful state of North Carolina has to offer — from the breathtaking scenery of the Blue Ridge Mountains to the gentle, breaking waves of our ocean coastline.
